    PART 2: Documentation in a Gallery Context

    Tuesday 16 April, 4-6pm
    CoCA Toi Moroki: 66 Gloucester Street, Christchurch Central.

    Documentation in a Gallery Context is a workshop developed and facilitated experienced art documentarian Janneth Gil.

    Part 2 of this workshop is for artists interested in learning how to accurately capture their own artwork and/or exhibitions in a formal context, such as a gallery. The workshop explores the importance of documentation as story-telling and due diligence in ensuring that artwork is catalogued and accessible to audiences.

    Over the course of two hours, Janneth will discuss how good documentation can capture relationships between works and frame the art in its broader physical and theoretical contexts. By the end of the workshop, there will be no doubt about the usefulness of comprehensive documentation as part of best practice.

    Workshop attendees are asked to wear black, grey, or white, and to bring their own camera or phone.
